Chris Columbus revealed what was the most difficult scene in the Harry Potter saga

According to Chris Columbus, who also directed “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” the hardest scene to shoot in the first Harry Potter movie was nothing more and nothing less than the introduction to Quidditch.

“The audience had to understand the rules immediately. So (JK Rowling) basically made a rule book for us, a Quidditch rule book, explaining every detail of the game. “ Columbus said.

The directors of the rest of the films in the Harry Potter saga experienced their own challenges in bringing some elements of the JK Rowling books to the cinema. It is striking that Columbus identifies Quidditch as the most difficult thing to do in “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.”
